SVSR design, manufacture and install a range of vent shafts for different applications, according to different site conditions and odour control requirements. Vent shafts are sometimes known as “Air Release Facilities (ARF)” or “Vent Stacks”. Below is a sample of the most commonly used ventilation shafts and cowls. We also custom design and fabricate to your specifications.
Our staff conduct a thorough safety and risk assessment of each site. A customised Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) and pre-start safety checklist will be completed and provided to our customer before commencing work on site. Copy of staff licences and other relevant insurances can be provided with the SWMS, if required
Sydney Water Standard Projects
SVSR supply and install vent shafts for Sydney Water accredited Major and Minor Works Constructors throughout Sydney, Central Coast, Illawarra and the Blue Mountains.
Councils and Regional Clients (Water Services Association of Australia)
Vent shaft replacement is best option for Public safety and no ongoing maintenance costs. Existing Council ventilation shafts are now in excess of 60 years old and present an urgent safety risk to people and property. Concrete cancer and sewer gases attack the vent shaft and expose the reinforced steel bars, making concrete vent shafts susceptible to lightning strikes, collapse and serious injury.
Vent shaft Cowls
There are 3 types of vent shaft cowling available: wire cowl (non-directional, also known as a bird cage); rotating cowl (also known as a whirly bird, used in educt cowls); and forced induct cowl (has a tail like appendage). We manufacture, supply and install.
